Here's our 2nd grade EAGLE Notebooks
This year we are using
something new to keep us ultra-organized...
A Great Learner (needs) Everyday)
Second Graders are
responsible for bringing their E.A.G.L.E. Notebooks home every day and
returning them each morning. We take very good care of our notebooks
since we will be using them all year!
Let's take a peek
Note for Teachers: Are you
interested in using EAGLE Notebooks in your class? Start by doing a Google
search for MOOSE Binders or MOOSE Notebooks... you'll find TONS of ideas
to get you started (there are also BEE Binders, BEAR Books, etc). Also
check out Mrs.
Smith's list of acronyms for your school mascot! Feel free to email
me if you have any questions!
The first thing you'll
notice is the Bird's Nest. It's a place to keep "golden
eggs" like money and notes from home. This zippered pouch helps
keep these items safe on travels to school.
Next is our Class
Handbook. It gives details about our class. It's also a handy
resource to have available if any questions arise! We keep a copy
of the Monthly Lunch Calendar and our Class Phone Tree
right after the handbook.
The next section is to
keep our homework organized! It contains reminders about Nightly
Reading (and how IMPORTANT it is!!), our Nightly Reading Log,
Comprehension Question Cards, and Book Pocket.
There are also zippered
Hefty bags for our Number Cards (part of Math
Investigations) and Spelling Ring. Our spiral Spelling
Notebook stays here too until we hand it in each Friday for
Finally, the last
section is for home-school communication! Our Agenda Books
are perfect for daily correspondence with our class families. We
write our parents a note each afternoon to tell one thing we
learned or did during our school day. Sometimes we write a
reminder note. Then we indicate our behavior by drawing a smiley
face (or a straight or frowny face). There is no need for Mrs.
Stamp or class parents to search for paper to write a note to each
other, it can simply be jotted down in the agenda!
Our school also uses Purple
Folders for daily papers and notices. This is located in the
back of our EAGLE Notebook. One pocket is to keep at home and the
other is for items to return to school. This is also a great place
to keep our homework packet during the week.
